In a wonderful show of community support, parents and youth who attend the centre as well as a Lane Cove locals joined forces to be build the wall as part of the Plastic Free July celebrations.
The wall is a wonderful way to utilise P.E.T. bottles and skills that can easily be applied in your own home once learnt. The wall also has an incredibly long life-span and we'll be sure to continue updates with images of how the plants have grown in, in the coming weeks.
Many thanks to all who attended on the day as well as Mark Paul of The Greenwall Company and of course Lane Cove Council and the wonderful staff at Synergy Youth Centre too. A special shout out to the children at Lane Cove West Public School for their wonderful collection efforts so we had plenty of bottles to build the wall too. A final thanks goes to the wonderful staff and volunteers from FoodFaith who were there helping on the day.
Take a look at the gallery of images from the day below.
